Dr. Jichao Zhao is a senior research fellow at The University of Auckland with 14 years of research experience and his focus has been on atrial function and mechanisms of atrial fibrillation (AF) using image-based atrial models and panoramic mapping. Currently his work contributes directly to the objectives of MedTech CoRE in twofold:
1) design more reliable medical guidance system for AF by working on a novel noncontact panoramic mapping using a basket catheter to capture and analyse atrial activation more accurately;
2) design and test optimal catheter treatment strategy for AF patients using computer and experimental models.
